The journey begins with my sketches and paintings; I mainly use watercolours but occasionally work with acrylics. 
My designs are inspired by the countryside and night sky and I selected ceramics as a way to bring my art and nature into the home. I love to create simple and clean designs. 

I select ceramics made in Stoke-on-Trent (UK) which are delivered to my home studio; these include, but are not limited to, jugs, mugs and tea tidies to present my artwork and create special pieces that bring a smile and beauty to the home. My original artwork is printed onto decals, made specially to be fired in the kiln so that the designs fuse into the glaze.

I chose this method because the finish is excellent and the design won't scratch or fade and will last for many years to come. I use a UK based printing company to print my designs onto the decal paper. Everything is designed and handmade by me; I cut out each design individually, and hand decorated each ceramic piece.This makes each one unique and special and also gives me the artistic freedom to amend and play with the designs. Once the piece is decorated I let it dry for 12 hours before it is fired in the kiln. The finished product is then dishwasher and microwave proof.

I make every effort to make my product delivery as eco-friendly as possible, reusing packaging materials where I can and purchasing recyclable or compostable packaging. Each piece is wrapped in tissue paper and I offer gift wrap and hand written messages if you'd like something to be sent directly to someone.
